    On this date this particular webpage is updated/crawled by google.
    Sites which are updated more regularly and have a high PR like 4 or above are being updated more regularly and hence have a date.
    Others with lesser PR or the ones which are not been updated for a long time dont have a tag coz they are not been crawled very often.

    When the page is Cached, you can also say that the page was cached that day. So for a new website or another website that updates often, it's a help to them from Google for people to know that this is for that day.
